Cho Hoon-hyun said, "The Korean Baduk community has been undergoing drastic changes recently due to the influence of artificial intelligence Baduk and China. In addition to Baduk skills, the importance of the experience value of playing Baduk is growing day by day, and I think it is necessary to establish a specialized Center to change the Baduk policy and take charge of promotion projects in response to this.
"In particular, we should consider establishing an institute to carry out policy tasks such as the development and implementation of mid-term and long-term projects." he said.
